Here is the last 6 months of my life, finally completed. When starting this quilt it was my first go 'round with applique, of any kind (though during the progress of this quilt I did a couple other smaller applique projects). I certainly learned a LOT! Also my first scalloped border. The thing I learned about that was Scallop Border=pain in the butt. :)

The AKA name comes from my husband. When I had first got the pattern and was looking it over I was commenting on it to him. He glanced at it and said, "I just don't need that much misery in my life." I laughed then but before it was all said and done with this quilt, I was feeling the same way. But it's done now and just in time for Halloween decorating!

Really brings a smile to my face. Love the scallop border. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
